Hi Sandra,

The donkey sanctuary is in Vouni. I can give you directions if you want, as I am a volunteer there. The phone number is 25945488. It is open every day from 10am - 4pm.

I only knew about Paphiakos but I am happy to see a few more horse rescue places which I didnt know about. An avid horse rider friend mentioned that there is one near Larnaca or Protaras area too. Its good to know just in case someone needs to find a horse a home as you never know what can turn up one's doorstep these days.

Thanks for the info. I have rung the donkey sanctuary and will start there doing a few mornings a week hopefully once my little girl is settled in nursery.

There is also riding for the disabled over at Epislopi. Sorry I don't have a contact number but I'm sure if you dig around you'll find a contact. It's good you want to help.

the only horse rescue center I know which is in Paphos. Papahiakos shelter rescues all kinds of animals and horses are one of them. I have seen the horse shelter and the horses seem pretty happy there too.

There is also a Donkey sanctuary but not sure if this is near Limassol or even something you would be interested in.
